3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky brown into Duvel tulip glass. Aroma is of caramel, roasted nuts and citrus. Flavor is a lemon zesty and slightly soapy. A nutty and earthy malt profile. A sharp hit of cascade hops on the back of the throat. Really a full flavored beer that is quite complex for its lower abv.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
nuts, licorice, orange, cloudy, lightly bitter, medium body. Appealing to the nose, malty with a bite. Beautiful amber-orange pour. Unfortunately, watered-down taste, bitter hops without much nuance. Medium bodied, with little to show for it. Bog-standard amber ale with a pretty face.

Rogue Amber Ale 5%
Can, a lovely bet pour with a malty peppery aroma with light fruit notes.
Medium bodied and fairly smooth the taste is bitter malty biscuit with floral/fruity hoppiness. A solid beer that goes down smooth, somewhat hop forward but balanced.

22oz bottle 1/12/16 (Old Notes)-Pours amber with a decent sized head. Aroma of malt and slight hops. Taste of the same with caramel and roasted malt. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit malty with a faint bitterness at the finish. Mild licorice aftertaste which I didn’t expect at all. Not very happy but fairly smooth. Wouldn’t seek it out but wouldn’t reject it either

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear amber with a nice white creamy head. Aroma is mostly malty with some hops in the background, a bit of caramel and bread as well. Moderately sweet, decent malty backbone with flavors of caramel, toasted malt and biscuit, light fruitiness, strong herbal bitterness in the finish, a bit harsh. Medium-bodied, dry enough with proper carbonation. I would prefer more fruity hops but still quite decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, gifted by a friend. Pours a clear amber beer with a nice amount of slightly off white head. Aroma is moderately malty and faintly hoppy, a bit thin overall. Flavour is firm and bitter in the start, softens a bit during the end and aftertaste. Very hoppy, but no real distinguishable characters are identified here. Just nice bitterness, soft carbonation and an easy drinking beer.
